Human Factors Course Development

TACG fully understands that many operators just don't have the time, resources, or expertise to develop an effective (and Regulator-approvable) HF course. We've got you covered! We can develop and customize an HF course, specific to your operation, to meet your needs and requirements. All courses are developed based on current and relevant HF issues.

TACG's custom-developed HF courses are designed to keep attendees engaged, and not bore them with endless theory and/or human factors "psychobabble." While some classic accidents are inevitably discussed, things have changed quite a bit in the last few decades, especially pertaining to technology. Therefore, we focus on the current, practical issues that affect line employees today.

Our highly experienced staff can develop customized HF courses for-

  • Airline Line Maintenance Facilities
  • MROs (maintenance, repair, and overhaul facilities)
  • FBOs (fixed base operators)
  • Ground Service Providers
  • Manufacturers

Services include-

  • Develop customized HF course(s) (Initial, Recurrent, and more)
  • Train your HF instructors (Train-The-Trainer)
  • Teach your HF course(s) (contract training)


Human Factors Course/Program Assessments

Already have an HF program? Would you like an objective assessment of your HF program? You have come to the right place! TACG provides unbiased assessments of HF programs for all types of aviation operators on a worldwide basis. Our assessments include a thorough analysis of your current HF program(s), a report of our findings, and recommendations for improvements.

Based on our results, TACG can also provide additional consulting and/or course development to help your aviation organization have the most effective HF courses possible. Our assessments are conducted as a combination of both onsite and offsite work.

Our capabilities and methods include the following:

  • Onsite work (includes, but not limited to, observations, interviews, and effectiveness of delivery methodologies)
  • Offsite work (includes, but not limited to, a review of applicable HF training courseware, training syllabus, and assessment methods)
  • Assessments take into consideration the specific State CAA HF requirements as well as cultural differences
  • Assessments are confidential and are not shared with the Regulator
  • We believe in long-term relationships -- not one-shot deals. We can be your HF training consultant for the long term, if you choose, ensuring your HF program is always up-to-date and meets CAA requirements!
